It's real nice to get rid of that drab gray apple upon bootup. I never could understand why Apple, a vibrant technological company, would "dumb down" its premier icon to dull gray. Well that phase of Apple's growth is done with on my Macs :D What about a change to get rid of Microsoft's gray flag? That change would be equally - if not more - welcome on my system.

It does not work for me. I am trying to change the gray apple logo to he colored apple from the sample images and it doesn't work. I drag the image into bootxchanger, click apply, and enter my password. Once i restart nothing has changed. Any solutions? I've already tried reinstalling it with no luck. Thanks.

Does exactly what it says on the tin. I no longer have to put up with a boring grey apple logo on startup. Nicely done.

Oh come on you can't throw us G5 owners a bone, and do one more PPC release so we can change the background color like or Intel brethren?

Works great. The only problem I had was with the documentation stating that the background color should be #BFBFBF. After some trial and error, I ended up with #CACACA. That may spell CACA, but it works for me.

The background color is #BEBEBE, not #BFBFBF. Even though it would be close to impossible to distinguish with the human eye, it is good to know.

How about an option to composite transparent images against a #BFBFBF background before installing them?
